Hot Air Balloon Pilot Academy
Ballooning Course at the Boreal Balloon School
Since 1987 we have been running the Balloon School currently located in Segovia. Most of the pilots who are currently operating in the central area of the country have been our students.
The pilot course consists of a minimum of 16 hours of flight (in 8 or more flights of 2 hours each) followed by a practical and a theoretical exam. The practical examination consists of a flight with the examiner; the theoretical consists of a test of basic knowledge on balloon flight, elementary aeronautical meteorology, navigation, use of instruments in flight as well as safety and emergency procedures.
